Lady Owls’ Bowden named a second-team NAIA All-American in softball

William Woods senior pitcher MacKenzie Bowden picked up another honor for her strong final season as she was named to her first NAIA All-America team.

Bowden — a second-team selection — finished the season 20-9 overall with a 1.23 ERA and 275 strikeouts in 182 innings of work. The ERA, win and strikeout totals were new career highs for Bowden, who picked up American Midwest Conference Pitcher of the Year honors for the second time in her career.

Bowden closes her Lady Owl career with 62 wins, a 1.58 ERA and a school-record 865 strikeouts.

William Woods (40-17) swept the AMC regular season and tournament titles, but ended its season in a 16-15 loss to Davenport (Mich.) University in an elimination game at the NAIA Opening Round on May 13 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
